Lauren Skousen Photography bio picture


My name is Lauren Skousen. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet! I'd love for you to look around my site and see quick peeks of my most recent work! 

I'm a family girl, a wife, a mama to two munchkins (and one more on the way soon); I'm a Diet Coke drinker, a Target regular, a list maker, a clean freak. And I'm a portrait photographer.

I love the opportunity to capture life's moments. Whether it's capturing those irresistible rolls of your baby, or your family interacting with one another, or the love between you and your husband before your new bundle of joy arrives, or freezing your toddlers contagious laugh, or capturing who you are before new adventures unfold after high school graduation.

My style of photography is clean, simple and timeless. I love capturing the traditional images along with candid images that help to tell your unique story. I love when clients trust me and can be themselves in front of me! It's when your genuine selves shine through that I'm truly able to tell your story with my camera!

I specialize in on location children, family, maternity, senior and lifestyle portraits. I photograph a select number of wedding each year.

If you have any questions regarding my photography services, please email me (see the "Contact" tab above). I look forward to the opportunity of telling your unique story!

As I was driving to Newport from Glendora, it was sprinkling and I was praying that the weather would hold out for their special day! By the time they exited the […]

Mormon Rocks Engagement: Natalie & Nate {Part 1}

As a child, I remember driving to Vegas to visit family and driving up Cajon Pass and seeing these rock formations known as Mormon Rocks. These sandstone rocks are named after the Mormon pioneers that camped in this area while traveling across the Mojave Desert. This is actually one of the places that Natalie and […]

I was so blessed to not only attend Kayti and Jordan’s sealing in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple, but to photograph their special day! It was fun to get to photograph a different temple, being that I live in Southern CA. As I’ve mentioned in the post for Kayti’s bridals and their engagement photos, […]

Daybreak, UT Wedding Photographer : Amy’s Bridals
